Downtown Tampa will be scene of Vodka Latke

The Tampa Jewish Federation and Jewish Federation of Pinellas & Pasco Counties will jointly host the annual Vodka Latke, a popular annual event for Jewish singles and couples in their 20s, 30s and 40s, on Sunday, Dec. 24 from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. at Franklin Manor in downtown Tampa.

Franklin Manor, a co-sponsor of the event, offers handcrafted cocktails, a premium beer selection and live music. It is located at 912 N. Franklin St.

The event, traditionally known as the Vodka Latke in the Tampa Bay area, is also known as the Matzoh Ball in other cities around the United States.

Tickets will go on sale in mid-November at Early bird tickets can be purchased for $36 until Dec. 1 and are $45 thereafter until Dec. 22. The price at the door is $54.

Free vodka drinks will be provided by Tito’s Handmade Vodka (while supplies last) and hors d’oeuvres will be served, compliments of Carriage House. Additional food and drinks will be available for purchase throughout the evening.

Thomas Stanton and Dori Marlin are this year’s Vodka Latke chairs and have a host committee which includes Rebecca Berger, Allison Fox, Jamie Gray, Ben Gerstein, Alissa Myers, and Jonathan Singer.

Proceeds from the Vodka Latke support the Jewish federations and Tampa Jewish Family Services, a beneficiary agency that provides essential services such as emergency food bags, counseling and financial services.

The Vodka Latke is a program of IMPACT, a community of young adults, ages 20s, 30s and 40s, who share a commitment and passion for tikkun olam (repairing the world) and building a strong Jewish community with the Tampa Jewish Federation, and the Young Adult Division of the Jewish Federation of Pinellas & Pasco Counties, connecting young adults to a broad range of educational, social, philanthropic and leadership activities.

Other event sponsors include Jonathan Singer and Erin and Milton Carp.
